    Well said! To bad I have him on ignore, I would have liked to have seen his response.

    Looks like PLEX! I only know that because someone also compared him to Benjamin combine stats and they look the same also. Also thank you guys for me not feeling crazy that sickbeats is nuts! I felt all along there for awhile and like I was attacking him. THAT is not me. It is just SO strange for me that on draft day you would not give your team the benefit of the doubt on these picks till they at least suck it up on the field? Then feel free to bitch. NO ONE is great at drafting so I am lost with this guy.

    First of all, the media is full of rock heads; how often do they just repeat each other, with very little actual intelligent thought being applied? Some talking heads know what they are talking about, but it's the minority. Plus, I haven't seen anyone swooning over the Steeler picks so far. But it is usually in vogue to do so, based on their past (but not the most recent 5 years, it just takes the moronic media to figure out things are no longer as they once were. They are slow to figure that out, instead basing things on reputation instead of actually noticing what is really happening in the here and now.

    As for who I would prefer over who they took so far? Pretty easy drill there.

    1st - CJ Mosely or Dennard or Pryor or Verrett.
    2nd - I don't have that much a problem with Tuitt, if they can shake the lazy out of him.
    3rd - Richard Rogers, Jaylen Watkins, Devonta Freeman, Breeland
    4th - Huff, Norwood, Aikens, Desir

    Of the guys you listed, I would have been okay with Dennard in round 1 (I think Shazier and Dennard are close) and Desir or Aikens in round 4 (but preferred Bryant). No thanks on the rest.

    sick beats: You are hilarious. I didn't even have to read past your preferred first-rounders. You say Archer will be injured and out of the league by 2015. But in the FIRST round you would have taken Mosley, who had four or five major injuries in college, or Verrett, who is either 5' 9" or 5' 10", 180 pounds. That would be all of 7 pounds heavier than Archer, the guy you call a fragile midget.

    I would never put you on ignore. You'e funnier than Leno.

    Round 3b, Pick 33 (97)- Dri Archer, RB; Kent State
    Round 4, Pick 18 (118 )- Martavis Bryant, WR; Clemson
    Round 5, Pick 17 (157)- Shaquille Richardson, CB; Arizona
    Round 5b, Pick 33 (173)- Wesley Johnson, OT; Vanderbilt
    Round 6, Pick 16 (192)- Jordan Zumwalt, OLB; UCLA
    Round 6b, Pick 39 (215)- Daniel McCullers, DT; Tennessee
    Round 7, Pick 15 (230)- Rob Branchflower, TE; Massachusetts

    I don't get excited just to get excited but we have some players who should be very fun to watch. Overall I would give this draft a B+.
